Chris Tillman (shoulder) is now questionable for his Thursday start against the Nationals.
Tillman has been bothered by shoulder discomfort for the last few weeks and apparently had a bad between-starts workout on Tuesday afternoon. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he'll make a decision about the scheduled Thursday start on Wednesday. There probably won't be an update before then. Aug 23 - 4:32 PM

Chris Tillman walked five batters on the way to giving up six earned runs in just two innings in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

He couldn't find the plate and failed to strike anyone out. He gave up a two-run homer to the second batter of the game. He pitched into the third inning but was pulled after hitting the first batter and walking the next three to bring in a run without a bat ever hitting the ball. Tillman was pitching on nine days rest after being pushed back due to a tender shoulder. He has been very effective this year after a down season last year. Tillman now has a 15-5 record and 3.76 ERA.

Chris Tillman (shoulder) has been confirmed as the starter for Saturday's game against the Astros.

Tillman had his start pushed back a few days because of shoulder discomfort but he threw off flat ground on Thursday and appears to be a go for Saturday. The 28-year-old has easily been the Orioles' best starter this year, going 15-4 with a 3.46 ERA in 25 outings.
Aug 18 - 4:42 PM

Chris Tillman (shoulder) said that he expects to start against the Astros on Saturday.

Tillman tossed seven innings of two-run ball against the A's in his last start, but felt discomfort in his shoulder after the outing. He had been scheduled to start versus the Red Sox on Wednesday. Saturday against the Astros is the new plan and barring an unexpected setback, the 28-year-old right-hander sounds as though he will be able to make that one.
Aug 17 - 4:10 PM

Chris Tillman's next start has been pushed from Wednesday against the Red Sox to Saturday against the Astros due to right shoulder discomfort.

Dylan Bundy will take the bump on Wednesday night in his place. Tillman held the A's to two runs over seven innings in his last start, moving to 15-4 on the year with a 3.46 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 126/53 K/BB ratio in 151 innings. Hopefully this is nothing serious.

Chris Tillman scattered five hits and two runs Thursday in a win over the Athletics.

He logged four strikeouts and didn't allow a walk. The victory was Tillman's 15th of the season and it also snapped a three-game winless streak. The Orioles haven't pitched particularly well this year but Tillman has done his part with a team-best 3.46 ERA in 25 outings. His next win will tie a career-high. Tillman will face a familiar foe Wednesday when he takes the hill against Boston.
Aug 11 - 6:59 PM

Chris Tillman allowed three runs over six innings in a loss to the White Sox on Saturday.

Tillman gave up seven hits, including a solo homer, while walking two and striking out four. After rattling off 14 wins in his first 21 starts, the right-hander has now lost two of his last three to sit at 14-4 overall. Tillman will carry a 3.50 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into Thursday's contest against the Athletics.
Aug 6 - 11:04 PM

Chris Tillman fell just short of a quality start in Sunday's no-decision against the Blue Jays, yielding two runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Tillman struck out six and walked three on the afternoon. A long solo home run by Troy Tulowitzki in the fourth inning served as the loudest of the five hits he allowed. He will carry a 3.46 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into a road date with the White Sox next time he trots out to the mound.
Jul 31 - 5:16 PM

Chris Tillman took just his third loss of the year after giving up six runs in five innings Tuesday against the Rockies.

It breaks up a string of four straight outings of exactly seven innings and one run allowed. Tillman has a tough matchup in Toronto against the Blue Jays next time out. Mixed leaguers might want to avoid that one.
Jul 26 - 10:15 PM

Chris Tillman whiffed seven batters over seven frames of one-run ball in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.

The Bombers cut the Orioles' lead to 2-1 on a Starlin Castro RBI single in the second inning, but Tillman then retired 16 of the final 17 batters he faced. He yielded only four hits -- three singles -- on the day while walking two. The right-hander has gone seven innings and allowed just one run in each of his last four trips to the hill. He'll carry a 14-2 record and 3.18 ERA into outings against the Rockies and Blue Jays next week.
Jul 21 - 4:34 PM

Chris Tillman held the Rays to one run over seven innings in a win Saturday.

Tillman scattered four hits and three walks, striking out three in the win. He's now ripped off three straight starts allowing one run over seven innings, improving to 13-2 with a 3.29 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. His 13 wins are second-most in the American League. Tillman will next face the Yankees on Thursday.
Jul 16 - 10:24 PM

Chris Tillman fought through inconsistency to pick up his 12th win of the season in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Angels, yielding one run on three hits over seven innings.

Tillman played with fire by walking five, but he managed to keep the mound mostly free of char marks by allowing just three hits on the afternoon. The only run to score on his watch came when Mike Trout notched an RBI double in the first inning. The 28-year-old right-hander will occasionally have to battle himself when it comes to his control -- he owns a 1.31 WHIP for his career -- but has mostly managed to keep those demons in check this season. In addition to his sterling 12-2 record, Tillman finishes out the first half of the 2016 campaign the owner of a 3.41 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 98/43 K/BB ratio over 113 1/3 innings.
Jul 10 - 6:00 PM

Chris Tillman pitched well in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Dodgers, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings.

Not many strikeout pyrotechnics for Tillman in this one, as he fanned just two on the evening. He kept the Dodgers off the scoreboard well enough regardless, with only a first-inning RBI single by Adrian Gonzalez causing any real noise on his line. Tillman is set to carry a 3.55 ERA and 1.23 WHIP into a Sunday home start against the Angels before he hits the All-Star break.
Jul 6 - 1:33 AM

Chris Tillman struggled in Thursday's loss to the Mariners, surrendering four runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings.

In general, this was just a drag of a start for Tillman. He walked three and struck out three on the evening, with Seth Smith accounting for half of the damage on his line with a two-run homer in the fifth inning. Tillman still holds a serviceable 3.71 ERA and 1.25 WHIP, but has allowed at least four runs in each of his last three starts. He will try to put an end to that trend in his final start before the All-Star Break, a road date with the Dodgers.
Jul 1 - 1:19 AM

Chris Tillman allowed 10 hits and six runs over five innings in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.

Tillman had a rough night, as his 10 hits and six runs given up were both season highs. He also walked two while striking out two. Even when he stumbles, Tillman can't seem to lose, as he's still 10-1 in 16 starts this year. The right-hander will carry a 3.52 ERA into Friday's start at the Mariners.
